It’s about time El Chapo change his nickname to Ulterior Motive.
The drug kingpin was sending some sultry text messages to Mexican actress Kate del Castillo, who helped actor Sean Penn snag an exclusive interview with him. Texts published by Spanish newspaper El Mundo even show the two planning to meet over wine.
“I’m not a drinker but your presence is going to be something beautiful. I want to get to know you and become very good friends. You are the best in the world,” Guzmán texted.
Another read, “I will have everything ‘super’ so that you won’t have to worry about any details, which would make me feel bad. Have faith that you will be comfortable. I will take care of you more than my own eyes.”
Castillo may have been feeling El Chapo too or just trying to get the job done, responding, “That’s so moving that you say you’ll take care of me — no one has ever told me they would care for me, thank you! I’m free next weekend!”
Other texts show Castillo explaining to Guzmán that she has something in the works with Sean Penn.
The actress finally broke her silence on the matter Wednesday night when she tweeted a thank you to her allies for their support.
The eventual meeting played an important role in helping authorities track down El Chapo, who was caught last week following a shootout with Mexican Marines.
